SYSAA Combined Events Selection Policy

The number of athletes from within the county who compete in Combined Events is insufficient to allow the SYSAA to hold meaningful County Championships, from which potential County representatives could be selected to represent South Yorkshire at the ESAA Regional and National Championships

ESAA Combined Events Championship Selection Policy


Selection to represent the SYSAA at the ESAA North East Regional Championships will therefore be made on the basis of athletes' achievements in other recognised competitions such as the Yorkshire County, Northern Athletics or National Championships within the previous 12 months.

The SYSAA Secretary will contact such athletes directly to ascertain their availability to compete.

Athletes, who feel that their performances within the qualifying period are such as to merit inclusion in the County team, are encouraged to submit an application for consideration to the SYSAA Secretary by the 21st May, with details of their achievements in the relevant events and the competition in which they were achieved.
